  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cut 6 foil squares large enough for each fillet.
  3. Center fillets on the foil squares and sprinkle each with dill weed, onion powder, parsley, paprika, seasoned salt, lemon pepper, and garlic powder. Sprinkle lemon juice over each fillet. Fold foil over fillets to make a pocket and fold the edges to seal. Place sealed packets on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 30 minutes.

This was really easy and my husband LOVED it. I added quite a bit more lemon pepper than was called for and served it with buttered basmati rice and peas. The rice nicely cut the spicy pepper ...

It was good but a little too much dill for our tastes. Next time, I will adjust seasonings and also shorten the cooking time. The fish was slightly overcooked and dry, which happens easily wit...

My family loved this recipe. ...although I used Talapia fillets instead. I did not change any ingredients and I will use this recipe again because it is so healthy and I just had a heart attac...

Excellent recipe! We used Tilapia and it turned out wonderful. A suggestion would be to add an ice cube to the packet for a little more moisture.
